On Tuesday we went on a nature walk with our grandchildren ,we had promised them a picnic

Well wasn’t it clever of me to pick the hottest day ever

I ended up collapsing ,and was crawling while pushing Isaacs buggy ! Me and the heat do not mix

But before that we had fun and I felt nice and calm from the “grounding”

This kind of looks like a Monet painting

Where we went is one of the first UK nature reserves,its about a ten minute drive from our house, because it is “the fens” it is as flat as Holland but it gives wonderful views of the sky

Our grand daughter was overjoyed to see the “magical house” in the middle of the woods

It is on stilts due to flooding, the fens are basically marshland

Arwen announced “ghosts live in there” and she is right,because in the past I have got evidence of that, you cannot go in the house but you can look through the windows

We found a lovely bench that was not there last time

We sat on this ridge looking for rare Chinese water deer, we didn’t see any 😦 I have only ever seen one before they look like teddy bears with tusks, they don’t have antlers

Isaac was COVERED in jelly !!

We did our “woodland trust” activity pack “invite a tree to tea” we invited my birth tree the birch

Arwen collected lots of leaves and acorns and feathers

This was how bright the sun was !!

On the way out we wrote our sightings on the board, a buzzard and a marsh harrier

We saw two baby shire horses going for a walk

We saw millions of dragonflies, I have told arwen that I believe they are fairies 🙂 this nature reserve has half of the species in the UK including the rare “chaser”

I did not have my camera with the zoom lens so did not manage to get a picture of one 😦

So imagine how surprised I was to find one when we got home,I have never seen one in our garden before in the ten Years we have lived here !

Pictures from another of my cameras,the dragonfly was on the roof of our gazebo

I also saw these on Facebook that evening

It was a lovely day ,apart from the heat and the walking has set my pelvis and hips off but it was so worth it,if I don’t get out in nature I get really stressed
UPDATE

seeing more and more dragonfly things on Facebook
